Azoltea, mixed media collage, 20" x 22", 2017,( framed, matted, and under glass) $800, I live in San Miguel De Allende every year for at least a month. Azoltea means rooftop. In Mexican houses, rooftops give a beautiful mountain and city view and are living spaces. However, this collage, was composed of hand cut pieces of watercolor and oils, including a map from and paper from Israel.
Cave Dwellers, mixed media collage, 24" x 28", matted, 2017, (matted) $600
It is an imaginary landscape, a timeless sanctuary. This collage is composed of hand cut pieces of oil and watercolor paintings and play pearls.
Mi Corizon Lates, mixed media collage, 26" x 30", 2019, (framed, matted and under glass) $950 . I fell in love with San Miguel De Allende about 9 years ago. Artists I barely knew invited me to visit for a week. I have since returned every year staying longer and longer. As much as the collage celebrates place, it is also a reminder of the passage of time and how important it is to live as fully as we can.
Pilgrimage, collage, 23" x 28", 2018, (matted) $600. I was given a grant to participate in an artist exchange in Israel, and to live with an Israel family in Arad. I spent a week first in Tel Aviv visiting museums, Jaffe and spiritual sites. The collage is composed of cut paper from my drawings, Sumi ink and oils, maps and travel brochures of Israel. I find Israel enchanting, complex, disturbing and intensely beautiful.
Printemp, mixed media collage, 16" x 26", 2018 (matted) $520. The word is French for Spring, but the feeling is Italian. I've traveled to Italy about 6 times, two of those times alone on art trips. Once I lived in Puglia for a month and painted in a castle from ten hundred A.D. I spent 3 hours one day at the Maliparmi store in Rome deciding whether or not to buy this extraordinary hand designed coat. I did!
Riff on Now and Then, mixed media collage, 30" x 26", 2018, (matted, framed, under glass) $950. I grew up in a family that traveled a lot. I had paper dolls from Korea and Japan as a little girl, and my house was filled with adopted Aunts and Uncles from all over the world. This collage is a jazz riff on my childhood. It includes archival paper which is 50 years old. The travel bug was passed down to me.
Topsy Turvy, Mixed media collage, 19" x 24", $600 2018
This collage is meant to be playful . Not about place, this art is about design and feeling. It is composed all of my own work.
They Knew How Lucky They Were, mixed media collage, 16.3" x 18.3", 2018 $520 (matted). The collage captures a moment of gratitude that can be felt anywhere in the world.
We Always Take the Long Way Home, mixed media collage, 27" x 27", 2016 (Framed, matted, under glass and ready to hang) $800
When I lived in Puglia I participated in a fellowship from the Bau Foundation in Otranto. We often took hikes in Bauxite hills. This collage was made while there. The fellowship started my collage practice. There was no place for me to wash my painting materials and no electricity so I had to work fast. I began to make collages.
